Heatshield Armor™ kits feature the same great benefits as the Heatshield Armor™ thermal barrier material, and include our heavy-duty 5/16-inch-wide Thermal-Tie™ wraparound ties to secure Heatshield Armor to exhaust pipes, mufflers, and other exhaust system components. The outer armor of this exhaust heat shield allows it to be cleaned after installation, gives it a long lifespan, and also makes Heatshield Armor resistant to the elements. The inner ceramic liner makes it capable of withstanding 1800°F continuous, which allows this heat shield to be placed directly on headers, turbo manifolds, downpipes, muffler, DPF (check with your state regulations), genset, and exhaust pipes.These heat shield sheets are flexible, easy to cut, and install. We recommend the ½" thick heat shield armor for forced induction and racing applications.

HEATSHIELD ARMOR CALCULATOR

Disclaimer:

This calculator is a tool to estimate how much exhaust heat shield wrap you will need for your exhaust system. Calculations are a guide only! While this calculator is very accurate, results will vary on installation of Heatshield Armor. By using this calculator your agree that this is a guide only and that actual useage may vary.

Guide for calculator usage:

All fractions should be in decimal form, for example:

  • 1/8 should be 0.125
  • 1/4 should be 0.250
  • 1/2 should be 0.500
  • 3/4 should be 0.750
  • 7/8 should be 0.875

SELECT ARMOR THICKNESS:

1/4" is reccomended for naturally aspirated automotive applications and powersports. 1/2" thickness is recommended for all forced induction automotive, heavy duty, genset and industrial applications.

RESULTS:

Q. Do I need tin snips to cut Heatshield Armor?

A. No tin snips are not necessary, heavy scissors or utility knife  cut it just fine!


 Q. Does the Weld Tape hold the Heatshield Armor in place? 

A. No weld tape does not hold in Heatshield Armor in place. We recommend our heavy duty Thermal-Ties, they have 45% more gripping power than most ties on the market. you can also use a hose clamp, safety wire, or other mechanical fastener to hold in it's place. The weld tape is uses to make seams look "pretty" or to repair any damaged to the armor layers. The weld tape is not to touch the exhaust directly, should only be used on cold side applications.


 Q. Why are there shields that are clamped on but don't touch the exhaust like the Heatshield Armor? Do they work better?

A. Aluminized exhaust heat shields, need air space so they can reflect radiant heat away, so they are not designed to lay directly on the exhaust. As far as the other basalt shields that don't directly touch the exhaust, we have no idea. Sometimes it isn't good to copy another design and over think it, try to do something original. Heatshield Armor will stop the most heat from radiating up from the pipe, period. You can trim it to cover just the top half or ¾ of the pipe instead of using a stand off heat shield, this way you trap most of the heat at the source, you don't have an air gap and try to indirectly divert heat, direct diversion works better. Physics doesn't lie, the most efficient way is to manage heat directly at the source.
